Agenda for parish council meeting to be held on 3 March 2015.
Joint Parish Councils need your help in bid to prevent Redditch ignoring neighbours
The combined Parish Councils of Studley, Mappleborough Green & Sambourne are considering using the Sustainable Community Act (SCA) to demand a meaningful consultation with Redditch Borough Council (RBC), to develop an agreed timetable of implementation of improvements to negate the environmental, social and economic impact on our parishes of the Redditch Borough Council Plan 4 (RBCP4). To use the SCA the said Parish Councils are required to show evidence that they have consulted with their residents.
Please email your individual Parish Clerks requesting that your Council supports this action, and this can be used as evidence when using the SCA to collectively challenge the RBC consultation process. Evidence of consultation and support from Councillors and any parishioners is to be supplied to Studley Parish Council by the 27th February 2015. The evidence of this consultation and support will enable the three Parish Councils to meet the necessary criteria to present a collective argument compliant with SCA Barrier Busting guidelines.

STUDLEY PARISH COUNCIL
Studley has a population of approximately 6,500 and the Parish Council is represented by a total of 12 Councillors.
The Parish Council has been in existence since 1895 and lies within the District of Stratford on Avon. We have three District Councillors who represent the ward of Studley as well as a County Councillor who represents Studley at Warwickshire County Council meetings. They regularly attend Parish Council meetings therefore keeping the Parish Council updated as to what is happening both at District and County levels.
We have a dedicated office situated within the Village Hall on the High Street and is accessible to members of the public during office hours (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 10am to 1pm. Closed on Wednesdays). Parish Council meetings are held in the Council Chamber in the Village Hall the first and third Tuesdays monthly. At the beginning of each meeting we have a Public Forum when members of the public can 'have their say'. Minutes for all of these meetings are made available to read and download on this website, as are details of planning applications considered by the Parish Council.
The Parish Council is often the first point of contact for anyone who has a problem or wishes to raise an issue. If it is something we cannot deal with we will always try and point people in the right direction or contact Stratford District Council (SDC) or Warwickshire County Council (WCC) on your behalf.
The Parish Council provide a number of services for the village which many residents are not aware of such as Allotments on Station Road and off Redditch Road, Street Lighting, Parish Cemetry and the Bulky Waste collection on the first Saturday in each month. We are also responsible for the upkeep of the recreation grounds at Crooks Lane and Brickyard Lane.
